    Is replacing the vinyl fabric on a 8x16 RV awning a do it yourself job? All of the hardware is good but the fabric is rotting away. I would like to get it replaced, if I can't do it who can? Any suggestions??

    No idea, but there is a "HOW TO" article in the current issue of the Good Sams magazine, aka Camping World… Grubby

    Have it done at your local RV dealer. You can only save about $75/$100 by doing it yourself. That spring is a real bugger and putting the fabric in the roof slot ain't a picnic either.

    I would agree with Jim R. Had one blow out on my old motorhome on the Interstate about 60 miles west of Oklahoma City. Do not let the dealer talk you into a complete new awning installation. The "technician" doing the work used an air wrench and cracked all 4 attach point in my side wall. My insurance covered the awning also.

    After considerable pondering, we decided to go without the awning. The winds in Kansas and at the Grand pretty much assure us that we will lose our replacement awning as well. Much cheaper to go without or to use an independent canopy.
